As noted, NXT U.K. Superstar Toni Storm recently spoke with the folks from Express.co.uk for an interview. Featured below are some additional highlights.
On Roman Reigns’ battle with Leukemia: “Obviously it’s terrible news. Not just for NXT UK but everyone in the WWE Universe, whether it’s fans or roster members. It’s quite a shock to everyone but we’re all going to stay positive for Roman. We’ll see him back soon, I’m sure we will.”
On challenging for the NXT U.K. Women’s Championship against Rhea Ripley at the first-ever NXT U.K. TakeOver: Blackpool event on 1/12: “This is potentially the biggest match of my career so far. Obviously I have already fought Rhea for the NXT UK Women’s Championship and I came up short. I actually got injured in that match, my legs lost feeling and I went through a horrible injury. But I won the Mae Young Classic and I get another shot at a TakeOver. There’s a lot of pressure on me right now going into this but I got a good feeling and I think it’s going to be a really successful night.”
On NXT U.K. having their first-ever TakeOver event to kick off 2019: “I just can’t believe that NXT UK have already got their first TakeOver, this is massive news for WWE and the UK. It’s going to be insane, I’m nervous already and it’s only December. I’m just very excited. I think it’s going to turn a lot of heads for the other WWE roster members and American fans. I think it’s going to be quite a head-turner and we’re going to bring our A-game for this one.”
